Rigby In-Home Care
There comes a time in each person’s life when they need a little more help with everyday tasks. At first, it can be hard to admit and you may be nervous that you will be moved to an assisted living facility. That is not the only solution and there are other options for you if that is not what you want. At The Gables, we are able to offer in-home care for our clients. This allows you to stay in your home where you feel the most comfortable and we come to you. We want to help you and make life at home easier for you. We provide compassion and excellent care for our clients all without leaving your house. We hope to enable you to stay in your home for as long as you would like.
A common reason for individuals to move into an assisted living facility is because keeping up their homes can become too much. A part of our in-home care is that we are able to help you take care of your home for you. We are able to help with just a few chores or all the chores that need to be done within your home.
We are able to clean bathrooms, mop and vacuum for you. Doing the laundry is another way that we can help by washing, drying, and folding your laundry. Any household chore that has become too draining or time-consuming for you we will take over so you can spend time doing what you love. How much you want us to clean will determine how often we come.
As you get older it can become hard to do all the things in order to take care of yourself. Maybe it is because of physical ability or your memory is not as good as it once was. No matter the reason, we want to help you take care of yourself. There are a variety of tasks that we are able to help you with. For many, having healthy meals is one way we can help. This would include grocery shopping, food preparation, and meals ready for whenever you’d like.
Another personal care item that we are passionate about helping you with is taking your prescriptions. There may be medications that are vital to your health so we always want those to be taken as often as needed to keep you healthy. Another common task would be bathing. This can become challenging for many as there is a fall risk so we can be there for assistance for that when needed. With each individual having different needs, we will cater your personal care for what you need to live more comfortably in your home.
Another piece of our in-home care that is available is companionship. As you get older, you tend to stay home more because that is where you are comfortable. But it can get lonely being in your home for the majority of your time so we will come to visit you. These visits are for you to be able to socialize and for us to get to know you better. We know the difference that social interaction can have in your life so we ensure that you are getting it with our companionship services. You will be the one who chooses how often we come to visit with you, it could be daily or weekly, the choice is yours. At The Gables, we want to know who we are caring for so we can give them the best care that they need. Our visits allow us to do that while also giving you social interactions where you feel most comfortable.
Benefits of Companionship
One reason we offer companionship services as part of our in-home care is that we know that it has so many benefits for you as our client. Getting older can cause you to get out less and be home more so you lose a lot of the social interactions you once had, like going to the grocery store. Social interaction is important to every individual’s physical and mental health. Physically, having connections can improve your health in a lot of different ways. It can help stabilize your blood pressure or lower your risk for depression. Mentally, it is great for healthy brain stimulation. It also helps with decreasing loneliness, gives you something to look forward to, and gives you a sense of purpose. At The Gables, we know there are numerous benefits to companionship so we want to ensure that you have access to this service to benefit your physical and mental health.
How often will you visit?
This will vary and will be determined solely by what our client’s needs are. Some want us to come once a week and some want us to come by daily.
Will you work with my health insurance?
We work with most health insurances and will work with them to create a plan that fits your needs while keeping costs to a minimum if any at all.
Do I have to pay for an initial assessment?
No, please call us and we will come to your home to do a free initial assessment to see if in-home services are for you.
Can I choose just one of the in-home services?
Yes, you can choose any of the in-home services that will best suit your needs. That can be just one of them, or all three.
